Final Subscriberthon Prize Bulletin

Wow! What a year. What an amazing event the Subscriberthon turned out to be. And now, the final announcements …

The winner of the Clem Bastow Prize of a professional press release for your manuscript, exhibition, band or event, is Timothy Rawlings.

The winner of the Ante Veritas Prize of a personalised short feature on the subject of your choice, is Tim Roberts. [Way to go, Tims!]

The RRR Prize, full of cool merch from the heart of community radio in Melbourne, goes to Peter Orchard.

The Scribe Prize, with a at least a year of reading comprising new release titles, was won by Vanessa Murray.

The winners of Gleeclub memberships, courtesy of Gleebooks in Sydney, are:

Catriona Wimberley
Tristan Foster
Chris Moore
Jill Dawson
Joyce Parkes
Chris Abbott

Victorian Opera gave us the great privilege of being able to offer a double pass to two beautiful productions in 2010. The winners of these tickets, and the shows that they will be attending, are:

Sean M Whelan The Bear/Angelique
Avril Bradley The Turn of the Screw

This prize probably caused the most envy and consternation among Overland workers, in that we couldn’t be in the running to win. The Melbourne Futures Art Prize, donated by Matthew Dunn, goes to Francesca Rendle-Short. Congratulations!

As if all that weren’t enough, 25 Overland Subscribers will be going to see The Road on us. These in-season double passes are valid around the country during the run of the film. Deep breath:
